ABOUT THE WINERY
It was around 1630 that Maté Szepsi Lacko, a Calvinist preacher, produced the first “Tokaj draining wine” (Tokaj Aszú).

The present singular was born from the grapes grown in the vineyard of Oremus and in 1772, when the first classification of vineyards in the world was established, it was already recognized as PRIMAE CLASSIS.Boüard de Laforest, in the rich potential of Lalande-de-Pomerol terroirs.

From these bunches, we obtain a very rich, tasty and mellow must, from which the Oremus Late Harvest wine will be born.
For the draining wine “Aszú”, the noble grains are selected
